It's a bit hazy here in Kuala Lumpur today. We are seeing blue skies with white clouds but no sunshine. As for air quality, no worries as DOE is recording good to moderate PSI readings all over the country including KL and the Klang Valley.
Was downtown this morning and while waiting for the light to turn green, caught sight of this KL Hop-on Hop-off bus along Jalan Sultan Ismail near Shangri-la. Getting on one of these is a great way to see Kuala Lumpur and what a day to see KL in this lovely weather today!
It was just after 10am when the coach was spotted so it was a full coach. Notice the open top deck and all seats taken.
Two types of tickets are available for the KL Hop-on Hop-off city tour - 24 hours and 48 hours. Just like the name suggests, you can hop on and hop off at any point of the city attractions and there are more than forty of them. Operations hours are from 9am to 8pm. Below is the schedule on rates to give you an idea. The rates have been revised with effect from this month. Still, it is a good price to see all the popular attractions in KL.

You may want to note that during the month of Ramadan, the bus operation of KL Hop-On Hop-Off will be from 9:00am to 6:00pm.
For 1st Syawal (8th August 2013) operating hours will be from 10:30am to 8:00pm.
Office hours are from 8:30am to 5:00pm during these times.
Operating and working hours will be back to normal after the holy month of Ramadan and 1st of Syawal (starting on 9th August 2013).

How come senior citizens are not given a special fare after all they are too free sitting at home as couch potato watching too much TV is bad for health.ReplyDelete
You do have a point there, Bananaz. Many attractions in Malaysia are giving senior citizens a special rate. I know the KL Bird Park is one, so is Zoo Negara.Delete
I would love to try that!ReplyDelete
Indeed, a great and convenient way to see KL - even KLites are benefitting from this city tour.Delete
I can't imagine sitting on the upper deck of the bus. KL's climate is hot and damp!ReplyDelete
It's not too bad in the morning sun, in the evening or at night but definitely not in the afternoon. The heat and humidity can be quite unbearable even for locals, I have to agree.Delete
However, the upper deck is where you'd want to be if you are taking pictures. No?
Oh I always thought the Hop On Hop Off Bus is free!! How come Penang can have free hop on hop off bus and not KL?!ReplyDelete
